Summary of Consumer Retail

When we talk about the industry of ‘consumer retail’— within the APAC region — businesses and consumers have continued to adapt to a steady stream of challenges, from lingering supply-chain issues to soaring inflation and costs of living. This has led to make Aisa-Pacific as one of the fastest growing consumer retail markets in the world.

As we’re unaware of how this market would unfold – consumers seem to become overly cautious about their spending patterns. And in a very crowded marketplace, mindful consumers have grown to be valued and rewarded for their loyalty.

The growing consumer class have been increasing to upgrade their expenditure style. Furthermore, Asia-Pacific is set to add some 40% of new consuming class people by 2030. Yet, history does not repeat. There have been several key watersheds in recent years that will reshape the way Asia develops as a retail market in the future. Based on our estimates, we project that the consumer retail market of the Asia-Pacific region would reach $16,897.18 billion in 2029 from $9720. Billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 9.53 %.

When it comes to tech and innovation in the retail marketing sector, the APAC region sets the trends for the rest of the world. The region, with its diverse and complex landscape, means that one size doesn’t fit all. Localization is key and success in these markets requires a deep understanding of the local nuances.

Recent Trends and Insights

China's retail market grew an estimated 10.63 % in 2024 to $3.8 trillion according to our estimates, with e-commerce maintaining strong momentum even as COVID restrictions eased. Livestreaming and social commerce have also gained significant traction.

India's retail industry is projected to reach $3.03 trillion by 2026 - up from $2 trillion in 2023. The rapid growth of digital payments has helped fuel e-commerce adoption-- with grocery and fashion among the most popular online categories.

Southeast Asian e-commerce giant Shopee saw order volumes grow over 50% in key markets like Indonesia and Vietnam in 2022 despite regional economic headwinds. Offline retailers partnered for omnichannel initiatives to capture demand migrating online.

Lately, consumers in Asia-Pacific are starting to choose "better" over "more." A large number of people are seeking healthier, less stressful and less cluttered lives as life expectancy, spending power and quality of life all rise. 76% of them will look for extra strategies to stay under their spending limits-- such as doing more research on goods and services before making a purchase. In order to obtain better products - they are eager to share their data - but they are becoming more and more dependent on businesses to guarantee the security of their information.

Product Insights

As the industry transforms— CPG firms must adapt their routes to market as well. Digital enablement of the fragmented trade would boost the e-marketplace and online-to-offline (O2O) giants' leadership in rising Asia while providing less space for modern trade in the Western manner.

Early adopters of digitalized route-to-market models will have a distinct edge over CPG businesses in terms of influencing point-of-sale service level expectations and harnessing the power of data. Increased customization of the value offer to the fragmented trade will be made possible by sophisticated assortment and pricing recommendations which call for various back-end procedures in CPG commercial teams.

Companies should take on making steadfast measures to better retain consumers as the economic consequences of launching a new initiative would take years to turn profitable. Thus, offering customer relationship programs and making improvements to loyalty would lead to present an opportunity to win over customers and generate loyalty.

There is also an occasion for retailers by investing in data-driven relationship management solutions, which can facilitate a more personalized shopping experience – something that two-thirds of shoppers in APAC want from retailers they regularly shop with.
